Shoujo + fantasy = ptw

Why does 2+ male leads in an anime automatically equal gay to some people? To my knowledge, guys are completely capable of having a purely platonic friendship. Unless this is you guy's way of telling me otherwise... The truth is revealed - all of the guys who are friends with each other are banging in secret.

Anyway, it looks kind of interesting, I'll give it a shot. And its been said already but it really does look identical to the Kono Danshi... anime, except this one isn't marketed as a BL. Not a huge fan of shoujo but it looks quirky and cute.

Shojo with two main guys and no main girl? I'm in! Another good Shojo with no female leads is 07 Ghost which is possibly the best manga I have ever read.

There's a lot of shoujo shows without female leads. What's wrong with that?

He probably thinks no female lead and shoujo automatically makes it into BL fanservice.

Is that an octoman I see on the manga cover? I think I'll check this out seems like it'll be alright.


Because I like shoujos with female leads? xD
Oh reminds me, I do like kyou kara maou! lol Might give this a chance.

Looks like BL so no thanks.


If it is it would have a shounen ai/yaoi tag, is it that hard to understand?
Now, it may have BL undertones and it may not. Just like many other shows with a mostly male cast didn't before. I think this is also not very difficult to understand.

There sure are some thick heads here tho.
anyway, it looks cute. Will definitely watch, hope the comedy is good too.

Am i the only one who thinks that the premise is very similar with Level E? An ordinary dude meets bizarre dude and hilarity ensues between them. This sounds right on my alley and Level E was an absolute riot that i enjoyed thoroughly. So yes, i'm sold
